View Full Version : Natty PB vs. Regular

05-27-2006, 07:57 PM
Alright, im sure this has already been beaten to death but i couldnt turn up anything using the search. My question is what is the advantage of natty PB over plain old JIF. I checked the nutrition info and everything is pretty much the same. My only real concern with PB is the amount of cholesterol, but apparently the JIF doesnt have any. So is the natty PB really that much more healthier for you? Thanks

Yeah seriously, sorry to bitch but there is always a HUGE thread on this topic. It always turns into a debate.

At the end of the day, the natty is better for you because it should have no trans fats. Natty should have peanuts and salt. However it's usually more expensive and the taste/texture isn't to everyones liking.

If you can afford it and enjoy the taste, get the natural stuff. If not, just use the cheap normal stuff. It doesn't make a huge difference.

Well, just suggesting a neat alternative. Natty PB and Olive Oil are both healthy sources of fat.

Canola oil is cheap and safe, 1200 calorie shakes anyone?

Yeah, once again sorry for the redundancy of this post. Getfit, thank you for answering my question. Ive been buying natty pb for quite some time now, but at $3+ a jar it can get kinda pricey. As for olive oil that stuff is way to expensive for my taste, ill just stick with PB. Thanks again everyone

Yes, please. What's your recipe?

It can also contain up to 4% trans fat per serving, depending on the manufacturer. Some of the vegetable oil manufacturers are notoriously cheap and cut corners in producing their oil. This leads to a higher content in their oil, even if specified as only 1% or so. Olive oil is a better choice, but a high grade canola can work if necessary.

If anything, Natty PB just tastes a LOT better than the regular stuff.
